No Facelift for the Toyota Land Cruiser on its 60th Birthday

2016 Toyota Land Cruiser

The Toyota Land Cruiser is turning 60. But it won’t be getting a facelift, or nip and tucked either for that matter. No, that all happened last year.

The automaker says no changes for the new 2017 model year which sells for $85,420 including destination.

There is still just one version that seats eight. A 5.7-liter V8 sits under the hood and its good for 381-horses. Together with an automatic 8-speed transmission you get 401 pound-feet of torque. There aren’t even any factory options, since Toyota says you don’t need them.

The 2016 model gave us more to talk about with its redesign with styling, drivetrain, and multimedia enhancements. The high-strength steel bodied SUV comes with LED headlights and taillights, chrome body side molding and 18-inch alloy wheels. It features four-wheel drive of course and can tow up to 8,100 pounds.

Inside the LC offers a 14-speaker premium JBL Audio system, perforated leather trim, heated and ventilated front seats along with a heated steering wheel.

The 1957 Land Cruiser was actually among the first Toyota vehicles sold in the United States.
